think there's a legitimate argument about whether the federal government should be funding pbs but in terms of the effect it would have on the deficit, it's sort of silly. here's the math. this is how much the corp ration for public broadcasting is part of our budget. two third of our budget is entitlement. the debate should be how do we pare back entitlement spending or cut larger government spending in terms of adding to the deficit. that's just my point this morning. >> well as you know i have a program on pbs but we don't get any money from pbs to create that programming, it comes from underwriters and foundations. it's one square mile with a lot of money. this morning we'll visit monaco the play ground of the rich, sun, and no income tax. you're watching cbs "this morning". two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many

work for the company or be part of a government agency or union. but it's broadening now and you can join at the slightest excuse, pay a tiny fee, one good example is the credit union, you pay $20, it's a donation towards the families of military soldiers. it's a great cause, you're a member and you can join. you can look these things up at asmarterchoice.org, a slightly biased name, or culookup, creditunionlookup.com. >> why choose a credit union over a traditional larger bank? >> there's a lot of reasons. the main ones are cost. in terms of what they pay you, you can do better on your savings account or your cd, you get higher rates. when it comes time for a mortgage or auto loan, you pay less. i looked up last night on depositaccounts.com, the ten highest paying five-year cds in the country, 7 of the 10 were credit unions. only three were banks. and they're not fdic insured, but they're insured by the national credit union administration, which is just the same. it's government backed, up to $250,000. so it's just people shouldn't worry about safety. that's a nonissue. and because

both yesterday evening and this morning. i spoke to a senior turkish government official earlier who said the firing has now stopped and that all of the targets was syrian military facilities. secretary of state hillary clinton has called this a very dangerous situation. the fear is it could escalate into a military conflict between turkey and syria. that would be massively destabilizing for the middle east and could even draw in the u.s. because turkey is a nato ally. however, this morning we heard from a senior adviser to the turkey engineer prime minister end he calmed some of those fears by saying turkey has no intention of going to war with syria but capable of defending its borders and will retaliate when necessary. >> clarissa ward is with us and been reporting on the upridesing in syria for more than a war. good to have you here. so what is the reaction on the part of the syrian free army and the people who are supporting the rebellion against the government to the fact that they have not been getting the kind of assistance they hoped for or expected. >> there's a sense of no

cope with here. merkel will be meeting with the greek government to go over the business of what austerity measures they are taking in order to qualify for the next slice of relief, a $16 billion payment that is supposed to take place next month. merkel, who has her own political problems with the payments, wants to make sure that the austerity measures are, in fact, being implemented. the greek government, of course, is trying to prove to her that things are under control. meantime, a huge security operation has been set up here. 7,000 or so police officers and army brought on to the streets, areas of downtown supposedly closed off to demonstrators. this could be an interesting afternoon. >> mark, thank you. >>> time now to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. the washington post reports on a new poll showing 20% of americans have no religious affiliation. the pew center >>> felix baumgartner is ready to take a fall from space. >> i'm going to accelerate so fast that i'm going to break the speed of sound. >> this morning we're watching this daredevil

in a british jail since 2004. he's been charged by the u.s. government in a series of plots, one thing he's accused of conspiring to kidnap american tourists in 1998 and setting up an al qaeda training camp in oregon in 1999. he started with aiding taliban and al qaeda efforts in afghanistan. >> how come it has taken so long to bring masri to the united states? >> reporter: this has been a long fight. he's been fighting extradition since his m dictment because he knows frankly he faces a life sentence here in the u.s. one of his alleged co-conspirators has already been convicted and he's sentenced to life in prison. masri is an interesting character. he lost both hands and one eye fighting the soviets in afghanistan and he says he suffers a number of physical ailments. he lists diabetes and depression among them. his supporters argued if masri came to the u.s. he would be subject to human rights violations in prison. so they used those arguments to drag these things out. >> who were the other suspects that were brought back? >> reporter: two of them are terrorism financiers. and

people supporting the rebellion against the government to the fact that they have not been getting the kind of assistance they hoped for or expected? >> i think there's a sense now not just of disappointment, but actually of real bitterness. they know that they cannot win this war without sophisticated anti-aircraft weaponry. it's hard to overemphasize how devastating the effect of the regime's constant aerial b bombardment is on the cities. they know they need a no fly zone or those weapons. because they're not getting them from the west or international community support, they're turning to extremist groups who are willing to step in and fill the vacuum. >> inkrcredibly important point. that's what many people in washington were concerned about. you have been on the ground, right? you just came back from there. do you think what happened yesterday in the news, that this is the first shot in what becomes now a wider conflict? >> absolutely. the region is on tender hooks in lebanon, turkey, jordan. i think everybody is watching very closely to see how the revolution within the country

militia and political violence is high in capital letters. the government libya does not have the ability to effectively respond and manage the rising criminal militia related violence which can result in an isolated event. when you look at this in the context of 20-20 hindsight the state department was being told there was a problem. >> what do you expect the state department to say in response to this >> the state department will do two things. one, they are going to give the first detailed account of what happened on the ground. i believe their main point is going to be security can go up or down based on a threat situation, but we've never seen an event like this. since the storming of the u.s. embassy in iran in 1979 -- >> wouldn't that make you more protective -- given the circumstances in libya which were so wide-open, wouldn't you be more protective? >> i think you would be. this is the recurring problem for the state department and i don't know how they will articulate this today. we have 280 u.s. embassies and missions around the world. they have 2,000 security agents. y

hasn't been heard from since august 13th. the u.s. government investigation has gone cold, until a disturbing video clip appeared monday on the facebook page of supporters of syrian president bashar al assad. it had been posted on youtube six days ago. a word of warning. some viewers may find the following video upsetting. the shaky 46-second-long video shows austin tice as he's being led away. blindfolded and in broken a arabic, he recites portions of a prayer and then shows signs of distress. >> oh, jesus. >> reporter: the disturbing video was not released on any known extremistwebsites. the u.s. state department can't verify whether the man in the video is austin tice, but friends say the man featured is the 41-year-old former marine. they say the video may be staged, saying the clothing is native to afghanistan, not syria. >> it's almost as if someone watched tapings of men and fighters in afghanistan and tried to mimic their behavior, but did so in a very poor manner. >> reporter: before he vanished outside damascus, he had been reporting on the escalating violence in syria as
